You may remember I wanted earring parts and elastic last month. Well I did end up making lots of earrings and bought extra to make a stitch marker as a gift (top right).
I also bought a hoop and some felt for backing it after becoming involved in another swap with someone who likes woodland animals. (top middle). I really hope they like it when it arrives. I was a bit lazy and glued it down but I like it as seems more flawless somehow.
The whole middle row I made from items I have in my house. In fact I made about 10 each of the project bags and butterflies. These are for sale on my Facebook page. The corsage brooch is for a swap and the tutorial can be found at Lavender & Twill.
I recently made a mini cooker as a gift and was very last minute gift. I had the idea bought the stuff and bang it’ done. I love a on the spot project. Middle bottom is my valentines jar for my partner and was completely free, can you name the brand of jar I used.
Lastly to go with the mini cooker every boy need an oven glove to protect himself so as my sons loves dogs I got him this fabric to add to his box. In fact today is his birthday so will update on my Facebook page how he liked (or disliked) his gifts.
Next months wishes are:
Felt As ever I’m trying to find ways to make what I can and I wanted my boys to have fun Easter bags so will be using some felt from my local market to make them some up. We like to hide small eggs around the house and they can do a mini hunt. It’s always cold and wet on Easter Sunday here so in the house is much easier first thing in the morning.
I plan to make more swap gifts, release a pattern or two and I need to get on with Rune’s next size clothes before he needs them so may be in need of fabric watch this space.
Also this month I released 2 new patterns one for dolls one for home. Click the picture for this Red Cape inspired by a certain fairy tale the other pattern well you’ll have to find that for yourself…..
As well as new ones I re released an old one with extra files added on and improved squares. The old one is useable still and yours to keep but the new one are slightly more even squares, more testing and reshaping. As well as all that you get lowercase, numbers AND motifs! It’s available as a whole set but I am also sorting out listings for each thing so if you only want one feature you can just buy that one.
